alomtnez (335) - SPAIN - AUG 10, 2016
Medium low white head with medium retention. Slightly hazy, nicely golden colour. Aroma is spicy (coriander seeds) and slightly yeasty. Taste is coriander seeds, malt, and some cripy. It is a very spicy beer (coriander seed) and little ’Belgian’.

mice (782) - FINLAND - AUG 9, 2016
(13.7.2013) Alussa kirkas, mutta hiivojen kaatuessa mukaan lasiin muuttuu nopeasti sameaksi, kuparinväriseksi olueksi. Todella paksu kermainen vaahto jää pitkäksi aikaa lasin pinnalle. Kaunis olut ja houkuttelee maistamaan. Tuoksu hyvin vahvasti raikkaan hedelmäinen sekä hieman saippuainen. Maku ei yllä ihan samalle tasolle ollen raikasta kesäterassijuotavaa, mutta ei paljoa muuta. Aavituksen hedelmäinen, aavistus maltaista makeutta ja lievää mausteisuutta jälkimaussa. Hieman vetinen. Kevyt suutuntuma. Päättyy pieneen mausteiseen ja kuivaan puraisuun.

johnnnniee (3735) - Bedford, New Hampshire, USA - AUG 8, 2016
Received in trade, thanks blutt59! Pours a slightly hazy deep yellow color with a huge bubbly white head that persists. Earthy spicy citrusy especially lemon on the nose with some faint crackery malt underneath. Spicy almost nutmeg in the flavor with a light bready crackery maltiness and some earth and citrus to counter. Smooth flavorful easy to drink beer.

Very nice golden pour, sweet bit of tropical yeasty flavors, almost spice like rye in finish

Iznogud (2381) - CROATIA - JUL 29, 2016
Bottle, 330 ml, shared with JFK10000. Pours golden, medium white head. Flowery, perfumy, malty, fruit, yeast. Light bodied. Sweet. Dry. Not my thing. Quite disappointed with this one.

elosop (288) - SWEDEN - JUL 27, 2016
Lätt grumlig med fint skum. Doftar lite halm och malt. Smaken frisk och brödig. Eftersmaken svagt besk och hyggligt lång. Ganska kraftigt kolsyrad.

wheresthepath (2097) - Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - JUL 26, 2016
Bottle at the Back of Beyond (JDW), Reading. Hazy gold with a light fizz & a large white head that rapidly diminishes to soap suds. Very sweet candy aroma and taste initially, but watery too; like a sweet shop has pissed in it. Bit of bananary Belgian yeast. Some cardboard and metal in the finish. Definitely thin. Dismal, an insult to the Trappist brand. I bet if this was made by A-B instead of Chimay it would get a far lower rating on here!

sjorsvdg (409) - NETHERLANDS - JUL 23, 2016
Dit bier heeft de typische Chimaygistsmaak. Het is een zacht bier, met tonen van citrus. Duidelijk een mildere variant van de tripel.

berkshirejohn (5948) - Bracknell, Berkshire, ENGLAND - JUL 23, 2016
33cl bottle from Beer52.com. A gushing, cloudy, pale straw coloured pour with a billowing white head; yeasty aroma; soft and soapy in the mouth, with a thin grainy taste; and a light spicy bitterness giving some gingery warmth. Disappointing.
